Less like a restaurant, more like being invited to a dinner party with strangers. It's all very idiosyncratic. The decor is best described a Sophisticated-Cluttered. The menu is unwritten so you have to pay attention to the lovely friendly waitresses. You also have no idea what you will eventually pay and there's no obvious distinction between what's chargeable and what's... More

Saw this restaurant mentioned in a newspaper article before we went to Italy. searched it out one afternoon to check it out and book a meal for the evening. Decided to enjoy a little sample while we were there and that whet our appetite for the evening meal. Very quaint restaurant, very special staff, beautiful food, great house wine, great... More

This is a one of a kind restaurant with an amazing kitchen and amazing owner! Their dishes are excellent and very fresh. They serve great wines and amazing deserts. Go visit this little gem and get mesmerized by the amtosphere!

We came here on the recommendation of the food critic AA Gill in The Times and he was completely right to rave about this amazing restaurant. Typically Italian service when we arrived we were given wine, which the owner opened and poured without asking and poured a glass for himself (we were not charged for the initial glass of wine)...

Little bit out of the way from the major tourist locations, but only 5 min walk from center. Great atmosphere siting outside in the summer. Great service with welcome drink and little appetizer. Great local bologna food. Fantastic service. Good value for money although on the higher end of the price line. Highly recommended for food lovers.

A little walk from the Quadrilatero you find this restaurant with very nice atmosphere. The place is inside an old Pharmacy-building, and there is also a terrace with a few tables. It is not the cheapest place around, but the food is excellent so you get value for money anyhow. The staff is young, but seem to be good educated... More

Synopsis: Lots of hype but does not meet expectations. Curious dining experience. Outdoor terrace on a hot august night, charming interior space, and a big hello from the owner upon arrival. Quick service (not too many diners as most locals are on their way out of town for the summer holiday), blah tortelloni pasta, wonderful filetto. No prices. No written... More

tucked away up a quiet street the restaurant was quaint, friendly and very italian. having read some reviews on tripadvisor we were looking forward to good food and Bologna hospitality and we weren't dissapointed. The menu is delivered by the waiter recounting what is on offer and as there is quite a long list its difficult to keep up but... More

Sweet terrace, calm street, nice welcoming and excellent food! We really enjoyed our dinner. The owner received us with a big smile and a glass of cold prossecco. The staff is attentionate and very pleasant. They make the effort to speak English! Straight away we had an amuse-bouche and then the dinner evolved at a good pace.

After reading TA reviews and the restaurant history on their website, decided to book from home a month in advance by phone although the line was unclear. Once we arrived there to share lunch with friends all living in Australia, we found our assigned table outside under the portico. It was rather warm with the temperature above 30 degree celsius...
